Rhinoscopy

 

an instrumental diagnostic procedure used to examine the nasal cavity and to study the turbinate bones, nasal septum and vomer, and nasopharynx. The term “rhinoscopy” was introduced in 1860 by the Czech physiologist J. Czermak. Two-valved nasal specula, nasal dilators, and special mirrors are used in rhinoscopy.
